This school parent group is literally run by one family and a few others that party with them. Very few parents are able to voice an opinion or be heard if you are not one of them in the group. Administration is good friends with the group and socializes with them. Beware of this place .. It almost has a Jim Jones climate

This is a wonderful school. We have two children in SsPP. The teachers are very helpful and well trained. Some of the teachers have been there for two generations! The school has recently (a few years) gone through many changes, almost all with wonderful results. We are a small school, but we are very mighty. There are small class sizes, which means lots of one on one time and even working through things faster! The staff care about all of the students and it shows in what they do. The parent organizations are very supportive of the school and parish. The families are always there to help out. This is an amazing school and we wouldn't want our children to go anywhere else.

My rating is for when I attended in the 1950s, and I would give it 5 Star. The Nuns ran a tight ship in those days. I left Alton at 17 and joined the Navy and served 20 years. Served a tour in Vietnam in 1965-66 and wounded in action twice. I loved that school. I'm glad it was resurrected. I am 72 years old now but still going strong. Please pass on my best wishes for the future to your students. Joe Waggoner

It is a great place for kids to learn and eventually grow into productive adults.

We love SSPP! Both my daughter and son attend. They receive individualized attention in small classes. The curriculum is well-rounded and the math and reading programs are strong. The teachers emphasize respect amongst the students and self-responsibility. My children love it and so do I.

we love SSPP! We have a wonderful new priest who is very involved in the school. I do wish that all of the teachers were practicing and faithful Catholics (most are), but overall I feel that my daughter is getting a well rounded education and Catholic catechism. One thing that I love about SSPP is that most parents are involved in the activities of the school- it is a great environment of loving families! The class sizes are small (could actually be bigger) which gives alot of personal attention to each child. I think that the administration needs to figure out some new ways to up the enrollment.
